Inspiratory Muscle Training In Exercise-Induced Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion

“The purpose of the study was to determine if inspiratory muscle training (IMT) would result in increased inspiratory muscle strength, reduced perception of exertional dyspnea, and improved measures of maximal exercise effort in an athlete with exercise-induced paradoxical vocal fold motion (PVFM).”


“The findings suggest that IMT may be a promising treatment approach for athletes with exercise-induced PVFM.”

The Effects Of 1 Year Of Specific Inspiratory Muscle Training In Patients With COPD

“The aim of this study was to assess the long-term benefits of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on inspiratory muscle strength, exercise capacity, the perception of dyspnea, quality of life, primary care use, and hospitalizations in patients with significant COPD.”


“The study showed that during IMT in patients with significant COPD, there is an increase in exercise capacity, improvement in quality of life, and decrease in dyspnea. The study also provides evidence that long-term IMT can decrease the use of health services and hospitalization days.”

A Comparison Of Inspiratory Muscle Fatigue Following Maximal Exercise In Moderately Trained Males And Females

“Exercise-induced inspiratory muscle fatigue (IMF) has been reported in males but there are few reports of IMF in females. It is not known if a gender difference exists for inspiratory muscle strength following heavy exercise, as is reported in locomotor muscles.”


“Inspiratory Muscle Fatigue observed immediately following maximal exercise, demonstrated the same pattern of recovery for both genders.”
